About Heidi

Heidi Fisher

Some girls grow up wanting to be a princess.
I grew up wanting to help make the world a better place.

Hello, I’m Heidi Fisher (founder of Make An Impact CIC) – an award-winning Specialist in Social Enterprise and Social Impact, Social Entrepreneur, Speaker, Author and Change-Advocate, and the very fact you’re reading this means you too have a mission to change the world.

Welcome. I’m so glad you found me.

Having helped over 2100 Social Enterprises, CICs and charities make more impact and showcase it to the world over the past 20 years, a true highlight for me came in 2020 when I received an MBE for Services to Innovation in Impact Measurement & Social Enterprise.
Wow I never thought I’d get to say that!

Needless to say, it has set my fires roaring and I am now more determined than ever to assist the incredible Social Entrepreneurs of the world with my Social Impact guidance, advice and expertise.

If that’s all you need to know to make your decision to get in touch, then I look forward to hearing from you.

If you’d like to delve in deeper, however, here’s my story…

My Own CIC:

My background is as a Chartered Accountant, having trained with PricewaterhouseCoopers. After founding Harris Accountancy Services CIC – a specialist Social Enterprise accountancy firm, I decided my real love was in Social Impact Measurement, thus Make an Impact CIC was born.

Charity Work:

It’s an honour to be a Board member for Social Ark, High Achievers CIC and Cancer United.

Speaking:

A true passion of mine is public speaking. I regularly speak and deliver training on social impact measurement, management and reporting; pricing for profitability; setting up and growing social enterprises; developing your trading income; as well as a range of finance topics.

Social Enterprise Consulting:

Throughout the years, I have worked with start-ups through to those with over £1 billion of income supporting them to become more sustainable, develop their trading income and to measure and report the impact they have. Recently, I have worked with Impact Hub Belo Horizonte to deliver an abbreviated accelerator programme to creative entrepreneurs in the UK and Brazil, East Coast Community Healthcare, Women’s Inclusive Team and many more.

Author:

I love writing, and have two published books. The first book “Social Enterprise: How to successfully set up and grow a social enterprise” made its name as an Amazon Best-Seller. The second book “Impact First: the social entrepreneur’s guide to measuring, managing and growing your impact” was published in January 2021.

Make An Impact provides a range of integrated and bespoke services focused around:

Removing the confusion around social impact measurement, reporting and management, as well as producing social impact and SROI reports
Developing impact led strategies to maximise your social impact
Developing products, services and sustainable sources of income to grow your organisation
Providing support and accountability to help you start, grow or scale your social enterprise
